My 7 year old daughter came to me in secret a few months ago and told me that she likes to look at pregnant women. She said that she tries to look away but she can't. Well today I notices she put some magazine clippings on the wall in her room and one was of a pregnant lady. I asked her why she put that up there and she explained to me again the she likes looking at it. I asked her why she likes to look at that (curisioty, I just had a baby, super special) but it was none of that. We decided that she could glue pictures of things she likes to a posterboard and put that on the wall instead. As I was taking down the one clipping she told me not to throw I away and that she wants to keep the picture in her drawer to look at. She said that looking at pregnant women make her feel happy when she's having a bad day. I asked her why and she said that she doesn't know and they maybe Jesus gave her this gift. I did explain to her that maybe he needs her to help pregnant women when she grows up. My question is...does this seem like an obsession or just normal curisioty...maybe even sweet in a way? What worries me is that she said that she does not remember a time when she didn't like pregnant moms. Also, I thought it was cute up until my discovery of her keeping pictures of them in her room.
